As you said. ATACAMS isn´t a ballistic missile.

That´s why.

Frog 7 could work but make it really inaccurate and have the rocket capable of being intercepted by AA

I believe Tactical missiles were deemed too out of scale for the game. Although this ATACMS replaced the Lance Missile which was a tactical missile which could either have a nuclear warhead or a submunition warhead.

Another layer of depth could be added to the game with Frog-7 and the OSA and HAWK could be used to intercept those big missiles. Remember though, the moment that the Frog-7 is added, people will start asking for the Scud, the Pluton, the Pershing, and the Lance.

No

USSR already can get 4x Smerches on one deck

ATACMS is the only cluster arty that the US gets and it can't be used defensively at all, unlike the Smerches which can blanket an approaching advance

One of the big reasons the ATACMS was chosen was that it gave the US a unique unit and didn't require any model changes.

Any REDFOR equivalent would require a new unit model.

The plate that covers the missiles is standardly conformed for the six smaller rounds, but it is also used to cover the bigger cluster munitions, so it's correct that way. ;)
